The Tea Centre’s range of teapots

Teapots are an essential piece of equipment for any tea lover, and purchasing the right teapot will greatly enhance your tea-drinking experience. Teapots can be both a daily necessity and a centrepiece for special occasions! If you’re after teaware that looks lovely on a table laid out for high tea, then the style will take top priority, closely followed by size depending on how many guests you intend to cater for.

What size teapot do you need?

Teapots can start at a one-cup size, with a standard large teapot holding about six cups. Larger volumes of tea will stay warmer for longer, but of course, this time will decrease as the tea is dispensed and more of the tea’s surface area is exposed. That means large teapots won’t necessarily keep tea warmer for longer; rather, larger volumes of tea, irrespective of the size of the teapot, will remain warm for longer.

What type of teapot do you want?

There are all sorts of teapots available, including glass teapots, Japanese-made teapots, modern teapots, stainless steel teapots, and traditional teapots.

Regional differences

Choosing a contemporary, traditionally English, East Asian, or novelty teapot can be based on whether you intend on keeping your teapot out for display purposes or you’re using it for specific purposes.

  • English-style teapots: many English-style teapots will not contain an infuser and usually come in the larger 4–6 cups size (600–650ml capacity).
  • East Asian-inspired teapots: Oriental teapots are quite varied and come in all sorts of materials, shapes, and sizes. They are usually smaller than English-styled teapots, with 400ml capacity and above (about 2–4 cups). Several in our range will come as part of a tea set with traditional small cups that have no handles.
  • Contemporary teapots: these teapots are usually more neutral in design and crafted with practicality in mind. However, such innovative designs can still be quite attractive in their simplicity.
  • Teaware material differences

    In the same way that a carpenter is lost without his tool belt, a tea drinker can’t enjoy the full experience of tea without the proper teapot on hand! When it comes to choosing the perfect teapot to suit your lifestyle, it’s important to consider the following pros and cons of each type of teaware material.

  • Ceramic: traditional feel and retains heat well. However, this material is more prone to chipping than others
  • Glass: aesthetically pleasing to watch tea leaves unfurling during the infusion process. However, glass does not retain heat as well as other materials
  • Earthenware: traditionally, there’s no washing up required as earthenware is said to retain the memories of the tea and tea drinker
  • Porcelain: beautiful pure white colour and an convenient material for teaware. Used to be very delicate but is now much more durable
  • Bone china: Developed in England by combining porcelain and bone ash. Considered more durable than regular porcelain

    Here at The Tea Centre, we have a gorgeous range of teapots to make every tea-drinking experience an absolute delight. Teapots are our go-to teaware when serving delicious teas and are perfect for when guests pop over for a visit. That’s why purchasing one of our teapots is always a worthwhile investment!

    Making a pot of tea with loose tea leaves is not as hard as it sounds, thanks to our easy-to-use range of teapots: we sell tea-for-one, two-cup, four-cup, and even six-cup teapots. So whether you need an afternoon moment to yourself or have a tea party coming up, we have the right teapot for you.

    To make the perfect cuppa next time you want to relax and unwind, we'd recommend brewing one teaspoon of loose leaf tea to every cup that the teapot has the capacity to hold. Most of your teapots will already have inbuilt infusers, making it easy to scoop in your tea of choice and dispose of used tea leaves afterwards.
